UQFF Goals

Create Dialogue

When selecting the films we wanted to create moments of reflection and thought that would to discussion. Within Unicorns.LIVE apps we have the ability to host written chats

Elevate Queer Voices

When selecting films we wanted to ensure a diversity of voices. From films about being trans and intersex in the middle east to one about an ethical non-monogamous relationship.

Easy to Access

Most in person festivals are only in larger cities. We wanted to provide people in all communities no matter how big or small the option to enjoy this beautiful content.

Affordability

At only $14.99 CAD for all films we wanted to make it most accessible for people view and take in these films.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why don’t I get access to all the content immediately?

We wanted to try to create the feeling of an in person film festival, and encourage dialogue around each film once it's released, hence why we’re releasing the films on a schedule. Since this is our first time hosting the festival, we’re always open to feedback!

What is included in the All Queer Access?

Access to all 20 films the moment they are released. You’ll have access until January 31st, or 30 days from your purchase, whichever comes first.

Why Virtual? Why not in person?

We decided to host the event virtually for a few reasons. The main reason being that this way, you can access the films on demand whenever you want. No having to be in one place at a specific time! Watch 5 films in a sitting, or just one. Invite friends over, or watch solo in bed. With virtual, the choice is totally yours!

Will the films remain available on UL once the festival is done?

For a limited time yes…?
